(ANSA) – AOSTA, JUN 07 – While waiting for the Chamber to express itself, the trial of former M5s deputy Sara Cunial (Mixed) has been suspended, accused of refusing information on her personal identity, insult and threat to a public official.
Contrary to what the defense argued, according to the single judge of Aosta Marco Tornatore, the accusations for which Cunial is on trial have no connection with his parliamentary prerogatives, so the objection of unquestionability presented by his lawyer is “manifestly unfounded” based on article 68 of the Constitution and law 140/2003. For this reason the court rejected it but, being required by law, it had to order the transmission of the documents for the Chamber to evaluate the request for authorization to proceed.
The facts date back to April 24, 2021, on the occasion of a demonstration against Dad in Aosta. According to the prosecution (prosecutor Francesco Pizzato), before taking the stage of the demonstration, Cunial would have railed against a financier.
At the time the region was in the red zone and the deputy – in the reconstruction of the investigators – had been caught drinking beer with eight other people, without distancing, outside a club (then closed for five days for violating anti-Covid rules).
“I am a parliamentarian and I enjoy immunity” she would have told the two financiers who had asked her for a document. Under the stage, then, she would have provided her parliamentary card, but shortly after she would have snatched it from the soldier’s hand saying “you should be ashamed” and again “if you go back to the boy to make him close the bar I’ll ruin you”.
